  • My First Competition Experience
    Regardless of ambivalence in performing, I took the plunge and decided to compete in a pole classique competition. I took private lessons once a week that began in April 2022 to prepare me for the big day in September. (Previous post: Competition Training Begins) Five months of training pushed me to the edge both physically and mentally. I felt like I had to search my soul for strength often. I put my heart into training. With support from my coach, husband, friends and the studio, I did everything I possibly could to prepare. Rehearsal was chaotic. To say it went bad, would be an understatement. My anxiety was off the charts the week before the completion. Finally, competition day arrived.

After about a year of taking Level 3+ classes, I decided to compete in a pole competition.

I started learning upside down tricks such as laybacks and inverts. All those tricks seemed scary and impossible at first.
